Irish down South Dakota, 102-76

South Dakota must have not thought Notre Dame could shoot the 3 ball.  They came out in an ordinary 2-3 zone, and then were absolutely lit up.  The Irish hit a new school record with 19 three point shots made.  The game also moved the Irish home court win streak to 40, also a new school record.  The previous all-time record was 38 before the Irish defeated Furman on Sunday to finally pass the long standing streak.  

Ryan Ayers had the best game of his life, simply put.  Before this game Ayers career high was 19 points.  However, Ryan exploded out with 35 points.  He hit nine 3s, the most ever for him in one game.  With Harangody out everyone else needs to step it up, and Ayers certainly did a little more than that.

McAlarney had a great game, scoring 27 points with seven 3s.  With Gody out, the Irish can definitely be defined as a 3 point shooting team.  McAlarney was just shy of having yet another 30 point game this year.

UPDATE ON GODY: Day to Day, could possibly be ready to take on Ohio State this weekend.
